Welcome to my blog

Hello and welcome to my first blog post!

I am very excited to share all my makeup/Beauty tips and tricks with you.  For those of you who do not know me, my name is Finn Mauritzen, I am a certified makeup artist in the Northern VA/DC area.  My work in the health and beauty industry has taken me all over the globe during the past 14 years.  After graduating from a Holistic and Physical Therapies program back home in Ireland, I set off to work on-board Royal Caribbean cruise lines, where I was a spa therapist.  To say I was frighten and had no idea what I was doing is an understatement, but in looking back at all the wonderful friends I made (including my wonderful husband) and all the amazing places I got to visit it was the best thing I ever did. After cruise ships I landed here in Virginia America, where I continued my work experience in the healthy and beauty industry. During the past 10 years here, I managed two beauty stores and also acted as an operational manager for a medspa in the Springfield area.

I recently returned to the healthy and beauty industry by starting my own freelance makeup business, Blush Away Makeup Studio. I work with wedding parties, engagements, commercial & editorial projects, proms and any event where someone is looking for that natural flawless look for a special event.

I am so excited to start my blog, where I get to share all my makeup and health/beauty tips with you from my years of experience in the industry.  Here is a list of topics I will be discussing, so if you are interested stay tuned, also if you have any topics that you want me to discuss please let me know and I would be happy to do so.

Makeup – application techniques, brand reviews, makeup products, how to blogs and much more.
Aromatherapy – I have a diploma in Aromatherapy and I cannot wait to share all the different ways you can use essential oils in your day to day lives.
Nutrition  – I am a huge believer that in order to get that flawless look, you have to start with good nutrition.  I hold a diploma in Diet & Nutrition  and will be sharing some great nutritional advice on what you can do to help your skin from the inside out.
DIY home masks, scrubs, cleaners and more.  It is amazing what we have in our fridge and pantry that can help our skin without using harmful ingredients. Pure honey face mask, yes I said honey.  You won’t believe all the amazing benefits it has for your skin.

I will try and post a new entry once a week, and again I am open to any suggestions in regards to what you would like to see!  Stay tuned because my first tip will be posted this week and it will be covering one of my favorite things…brides and wedding day makeup!! Preparing a bride to get that flawless look for her big day!

Thank you!
Finn Mauritzen
